First phase of vaccination for frontline health workers will be completed this week

DUBLIN: The HSE has announced that vaccinations for frontline health workers will be completed this week. According to an HSE spokesperson, the first dose for frontline health care staff is almost completed. The vaccine portal for frontline health care staff will close at the end of this week. The health department has said the vaccine will be provided to leading health workers who register this week.

Meanwhile, the HSE has apologized after healthcare staff were given duplicate vaccination appointments for different locations. Vaccination appointment was offered to health care workers at Aviva Stadium and Beacon Hospital in Dublin.

The HSE said the “issues arose because of the work underway across separate teams to finish the residue of Cohort 2 applicants. Work has now been undertaken to ensure that this does not reoccur.”

The healthcare staff were unsure where to go because the offer came from both locations at the same time. They “could not cancel one without cancelling the other,” spokesperson said.

He said that “where enquires were received people were told to accept the most convenient one. No vaccine was wasted as a result of this small number of double appointments. The HSE apologies for any inconvenience caused.”
